Death Penalty Dropped in Virginia Officer's Killing

March 25, 2014  | 

Even if he's found guilty of murder, Raymond Lewis Perry won't be put to death, reports the Virginian-Pilot.

Before Monday, prosecutors had been seeking the death penalty in their case against Perry, who is accused of killing Norfolk, Va., police officer Victor Decker in 2010.

But Monday morning, they told a judge they don't have enough evidence to make that case. Instead, they're seeking life in prison for Perry, who already is serving nearly 97 years for other crimes.

The move comes one week after Commonwealth's Attorney Colin Stolle dropped all charges against Kareem Hasson Turner, the other man who had been accused of murdering Decker.

As the sign says, "Spay or Neuter"

Perry had a criminal record going back to when he was 10.

Prosecutors don't have enough evidence. A trooper is dead and they charged the suspect with the murder so they had to have evidence for that. It's not rocket science you kill a cop you get the death penalty. How hard is that?

Unbelievable!!!!!

Glad I don't live in VA.

Commonwealth Attorney Colin Stolle should be recalled and if not voted out at next chance. This is an affront to the Trooper, Family, Agency, Friends, and All other L.E.
